    Cattle Camps are large areas where herders hold cattle for wealthy individuals who own hundreds of cattle at a time. These cattle are essential for marrying a woman in South Sudanese culture, as well as maintaining a status in the community. However, with the recent price of dowry rising, raiding and shootouts are becoming common practice. Cattle Camps play a historic role of South Sudanese culture, but recently due to conflicts between tribes, there are regular talks of disbanding them altogether with the modernization of this brand new country. Obakki has implemented a pilot project which hopes to preserve this dying tradition by drilling boreholes and livestock watering stations in the cattle camps, eliminating the fight for territory.

        DUBLUCK, Ethiopia — On a warm January afternoon in southern Ethiopia, thousands of ill-tempered livestock stand in groups with the pastoralists who have guided them for dozens of miles to drink. The animals dot an expansive field of Acacia trees, severed bits and pieces of dead grass and dust. Earlier in the day thousands of young goats, sheep and calves took turns to have their fill of water. And the show will not end with the cattle; camels are still waiting in line. For being the best able to resist drought, now they will be last. Produced by Alex Stonehill and Julia Marino of CLPMag.org for PBS's Foreign Exchange with Daljit Dhaliwal in association with the Pulitzer Center On Crisis Reporting.
